Vipul and all 

To add to the "bed" side of the demo, I have added  some PD disease 
management guidelines to the use case [1].  These guidelines present 
evidence generated from clinical trials and make recommendations ranging 
from diagnostic methods, medication to patient monitoring and care plan. 
They seem to be a suitable body of knowledge to be used for the bench-> 
bedside demo. 

I also depicted a diagram to show "cluster" of knowledge (ontology) 
relevant to the clinical care of patient (bed side).

To generate the needed knowledge bases for this demo, we can either 

        develop rdf/owl/rules strictly based on the information presented 
in these guidelines
                try to find cluster of knowledge in existing ontologies 
such as those found in OBO, BIRN, etc. 

Either way requires some hard hands-on work. 

We also need to sketch a "virtual patient" with a given set of conditions, 
so that the ontology and rules derived for bench-bedside demo can be 

Please have a look to see if I am on the right track before I start to 
write triples.  By the way, is anyone working on generating triples from 
the use case detailed on the wiki page "Parkinson's Disease Information 
Aggregation Use Case" [1].
